APIs for Cyborgs

Cyborgs are all around us, and they're becoming self-aware. This talk uses NFC as a demonstration of opportunities and pitfalls of open hardware for the human body. Our live-coding journey will take us through an intro to NFC protocols by building an app for the NFC transponder implanted into my hand.
